Hi, guys —

  • What was the significance of the gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh from the Magi?
  • What did each gift represent?


  { What was the significance of the gifts from the Magi of gold, frankincense, and myrrh? }

Eric replied:


  1. The gold represents his kingship.
  2. The frankincense, used in the temple for worship, represented his priesthood or some say, his deity, since incense was often offered to gods.
  3. The myrrh, used in burial and for alleviating suffering of the dying, foretold his suffering and death.

For more information, do a Google search on 'gold frankincense myrrh meaning Catholic'.
